On December 23rd, major pop culture magazine publication Vanity Fair sparked controversy after they posted a video mocking former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The video titled, “6 New Year’s Resolutions for Hillary Clinton,” which currently has over 1 million views, poked fun at Clinton’s decline in her political career.
If you missed the video, watch it below:
After facing backlash from a number of Clinton supporters, Vanity Fair released an apology statement, “It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark.”
As previously reported, Vanity Fair has published similar videos for Republicans, including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn, which did not follow up with any apology statements.
President Trump responded to Vanity Fair's actions via Twitter on Thursday, December 28th, shortly after the publication apologized to the public for the Clinton video.
“Vanity Fair, which looks like it is on its last legs, is bending over backwards in apologizing for the minor hit they took at Crooked [Hillary Clinton],” he said, bringing attention to the far-left media bias and insisting that the video did not require an apology.
He continued by commenting on Anna Wintour, one of Vanity Fair’s directors, “Anna Wintour, who was all set to be Amb to Court of St. James’s & a big fundraiser for [Crooked Hillary], is beside herself in grief & begging for forgiveness!”
According to The Hill, Wintour is a major Democratic donor who has feuded with Trump since the 2016 presidential election.
